welcome to our t twenty four hour news live from moscow my name is you know chicago and news just in a u.s. for fueling plane has crashed near the border between a caregiver stan and kazakhstan there is no word of casualties or damage on the ground officials say emergency crews are on their way to the crash site the u.s. maintains an airbase in kyrgyzstan using it as a transit hub to supply its forces in qatar in afghanistan i should say and the reported crash comes just days after another american plane went down in afghanistan killing all seven crew members of course we'll keep you up to date on this story as we get more details. the news and washington is now officially considering the syrian rebels after holding bond for two years that's according to defense secretary chuck hagel the dramatic twist comes just days after u.s.
officials confirmed intelligence pointing to the use of chemical weapons by the sea when it read she's going to you can see just now from washington so far the administration has been reluctant to arm the rebels directly old though its allies have been doing that for the past two years there have been persistent reports of increasing radicalization of anti assad forces you have an al qaeda affiliated group operating there and the opposition generally welcomes their efforts of the concerns are there now the administration says it's rethinking arming syrian opposition fighters secretary hagel said he'd ministration is considering a range of options he also said he firstly has not decided whether it would be race to provide weapons to the rebels so there is nothing definitive in those remarks at this stage but the context of recent events has created a certain momentum in this kind of momentum may end up bolstering those forces on the ground and actually result in more violence because those fighters one weapons and they want heavy weapons now president obama this week said there is proof that
assad government also forces if used chemical weapons in syria that would be quote again changer again he says the u.s. had evidence that the weapons were used but had no conclusive evidence to tie it to the assad government right now both the rebels and the assad forces blaming each other for the alleged chemical attack in the middle of march in aleppo the syrian government requested the u.n. to send a mission to investigate the incident the u.n. fact finding team has been on standby and ready to deploy but then the u.n. chief appears to have changed his plans for the investigation there's russia's foreign minister with more on the. syrian government and the sort of the germans are. doing this to. the secretary general. it that he is ready to do this but a couple of days later he sent a letter to the syrian government demanding a nexus for the international experts to all territory to the entire series of
syria as well as access to any site and any person this team would like to talk to or to visit and this is something which really defeats the purpose of immediate. investigation into the specific reported case of the use of chemical substances to have either texas in your sights to any person in syria. resembles very much the security council resolutions regarding iraq and we all remember the end of that story so now instead of investigating a concrete incident the u.n. wants access to all sites and this inquiry has once again thought the united nations into the center of a possible plan for weapons of mass destruction where he faces the growth of. the fear again is that politics may get ahead of fact rebels armed by the us could end up telling their weapons on americans that's willing to independent research.
he says that the use should even in washington. they're disappointed that the team has not fallen fast enough and it had always been the intention not only to dismantle the syrian army all render it useless but for us actually and this isn't happening in order to boost support for intervention we need to come up with all sorts of stories such as use of chemical weapons former cia operatives all the bloke the united states has a band-aid policy we we will take care of something today not think about what's happening tomorrow and every time it's the population in america it's the americans that are being victimized as a result of blowback it's not the people that start these wars start the arms and they continue to win at major corporations that are funding these words so you know the american people in a sense are almost as much. as the people in this part that are being subjected to
these grandest. things that are going on on the ground there and it will come back to bite the bullet. it's a happy day for euro skeptics across britain after the u.k. independence party stole the show another british by election the group that seeks britain's withdrawal from the european union came in second in south shields hyundai's perceived as a staggering result considering u.k.i.p. didn't even stand in the constituency in the last general election let's not get north from twenty point a very nice to see today so another by election and another very strong showing with a second place just how established is u.k.i.p. on the british political scene now. well south shields he still be the seat of former labor foreign minister david miliband and it was seen as a real litmus test for how people are feeling at the moment and they've managed to keep hold of that seat but with you nipping at their heels so they've come in fact
. and and it's significant because what it shows is a pattern is emerging over the past six months you can't have come second in four by elections most notably in eastley very recently and it's showing that you can't this was a party that was until very recently seen as marginal one senior conservative minister described it described them as clowns only very very recently but it looks like they're having the last last this is a party that's noticeably euro skeptic they want to see britain out of the european union they're not happy with the way that brussels dictates policies for the u.k. how much money the u.k. treasury forks out for the european commission every month and the fact that they've got such gains shows how fed up the british people are with the political status quo in this country because of course local elections have been taking place across the country and all traditionally seen as a gauge of how the current government is doing so we'll see verdicts in full. well
the pattern emerging is very clear the ruling coalition parties the conservatives and the liberal democrats have sustained losses in council seats quite significant ones in fact labor have made slight gains nothing to write home about this was really the night of u.k. independence party quite the count so far they looks like they've gained over a hundred council seats that's an average of over twenty six percent of the vote in the wards where they were represented in so overnight we've seen a real change to the british political landscape because there are now going to be ukip councillors all over the u.k. some might end up holding quite significant power and it's you know this is a party as i said it was seen as a very marginal until very recently it was the place none of the above parties a place where people launched their protest because they were so fed up with the established status quo that the lib dems the conservatives and the labor party. but
that has all changed overnight we've seen nigel farage the leader of the u.k. independence party appearing on television this morning saying he's delighted with the results so far that he's he says but it really shows that ukip is a long lost in political party that success hasn't been short and the chairman of the conservative party this morning had to concede that clearly that policy is failing to get their message across and they're going to have a think about what they can do to change that. alright he's probably boyko live from london poorly money thanks indeed. iraq could be undergoing once was a crisis since there was draw of u.s. soldiers at the end of twenty eleven the united nations says more than seven hundred people were killed in the country last month and more than sixteen hundred injured most of the deaths came in late april after the deadly clashes between
security forces and sunni protesters in cuckoo things didn't spark a wave of violence that quickly spread on other areas certain iraqi government as a group by corruption and political unrest with calls for prime minister no monica to resign and many fear sectarian tensions could escalate and see a return to full blown war she's this account from the examines now the impact of national struggles on the lives of ordinary iraqis. bombs may still haunt baghdad but these young men are more concerned with burning the rubber in a country where daily life is based on trying to avoid the dangers these rockies are turning to danger as a way to avoid reality tasting the thrill of speed and testing the authorities it's an unexpected sight in post-war iraq for the fun a grim statistic half of the country's growing youth population is on able to find
work. the biggest problem is financial. everyone is constantly trying to find work but in baghdad there are very few jobs i'm myself i'm unemployed. ten years after the war a lie but iraq a full of contradictions but for young men like omar the motorcycle is one way to escape the daily press for a sense of life here in iraq a reading of that and taking the opportunity uncertain future. adrenaline may be one way of coping with uncertainty but not for salva hasan hussein she now spends most of her days at home with her daughters trying to rebuild a life shattered by corruption in the household chores are a far cry from her former career as a journalist but she's too scared to return to work she had been investigating corruption and prison abuses when she herself was detained and thrown behind bars the charges have been dropped but the family have to sell nearly everything they own is just to cover the thousands of dollars in bribes to secure her release. in
this country money can buy you can buy your high position and it can buy you freedom and if you get accused of something in iraq you could be executed just because you can't afford to pay to save your life. it was a year long ordeal that by her account involved beatings and sexual assault she says that she's become a victim of the same corruption she once tried to expose. from victims to victors in a country better known for violence and divisions this youth football school is one of the few bright spots that stands out sunni shia and christian kids play here on the same field and that's exactly why the school was opened fourteen year old ali doesn't like to talk about the day his father was killed instead he spent his time training on the field hoping one day play on iraq's national football team but for now a more pressing desire. so i want the security situation to become peaceful

unemployment rising reading of a separation between the french and german economies cutting interest rates by this small amount won't actually really make much difference we need of radical change of policy within a year to bring about economic growth eventually the will have to be a breakup of the euro that's the only way to restore economic growth it's the only way to get people back to work if they can have their common seas depreciate and of course that the the the new tapering since the door each market that were to be returned that would then increase in value and that would help the disparities within the eurozone which has been created largely by the single currency to need to be a vertical change of course unemployment will just keep on going up meanwhile disintegrating colonies in the most debt burden countries of the euro of europe that are forcing some people to resulted streams as a piece on of or found out. portugal is certainly beautiful but its current
financial woes are making it a living hell for some with one portuguese man claiming that the crisis has driven him to crying can still work for over thirty years in construction before being laid off today he's a convicted thank rob no money. i needed a few hundred euros for medication also we had no food at home this is what i bought with the money that was stolen i think about a thousand euros. turned to crime after he couldn't afford to pay the medical bills for his now ex-wife who suffers from m.s. . i rolled my own branch because of what they did to me he gave me loans are crazy interest resource have to take more loans to pay for them they robbed me so i robbed i'm not proud but i think the state forced me into this position so what's going through your head as you're walking down here knowing that you're about to commit a crime as soon as i had a small plastic toy guns as i was approaching the banker's oxman nearby there was a bag near the street so i said to the caucus should check it out i hope this would
